C100G Chosen to Deliver Advanced Multimedia Services to Telenet's Subscriber Base
ANDOVER, MA and MECHELEN, BELGIUM--(Marketwired) - Casa Systems, a worldwide leader in next-generation cable edge technology, and Telenet, the leading cable service provider in Belgium, specializing in the supply of broadband internet, fixed and mobile telephony services and cable television to customers throughout Flanders and Brussels, jointly announced today that Telenet has selected its C100G platform for a CCAP rollout. Casas' C100G was chosen over competing platforms after rigorous testing in lab and field trials. The C100G was the recent winner of Light Reading's "Best New Product" in Cable award and Broadband Technology Report's inaugural "Innovation Award."
"Telenet is among the most forward thinking, innovative MSOs and we are very excited to be their partner in rolling out advanced multimedia services based on our ICCAP platform," said Jerry Guo, founder and CEO of Casa Systems. "We are looking forward to working with them to ensure a successful deployment and rollout."
Under the terms of the multi-year agreement Casa Systems will supply Telenet with its ICCAP, C100G platform, packaged with professional services covering the full suite of network design, installation, configuration and management services. Telenet will migrate both its existing consumer and business services off of existing competitors CMTS platforms and move to the C100G, adding video services and enhanced Internet access speeds in the process.
"Telenet had gone through a very exhaustive vendor evaluation before selecting Casa System's C100G," said Bart Bleyen, Director Engineering of Telenet. "The C100G has proven to be the superior platform in terms of performance and density through the extensive testing process. We are looking forward to working with Casa Systems as we deliver advanced multimedia and high-speed Internet services to our subscriber base. Especially, video-on-demand requests are increasing rapidly so we needed a reliable system that can cope with this. The C100G met all our demands. It allows us to make our network ready for the future."
Casa Systems' innovative approach enables cable operators to cost effectively and seamlessly deliver ICCAP functionality, offering highly scalable broadband services such as IPTV, MPEG video, interactive gaming, as well as traditional broadband access and VoIP services. As the industry's only vendor with full DOCSIS 3.0 and PacketCable 1.5 qualification, Casa Systems products deliver reliability, scalability, performance, and operational simplicity.
Casa System's ICCAP solution with the DS8x96 module has proved its considerable advantages over competing Modular CCAP platforms in channel density, reliability and scalability. The product enables MSOs to deploy DOCSIS, IPTV and MPEG video on a single chassis over a single port. When combined with the DS8x96 module, Casa's platform delivers the industry's highest I-CCAP density while having the lowest power consumption available, significantly reducing operating costs.
